Do the Unexpected | 136

This month, we’re taking a little time to talk about building relationships with our children. Last week, we talked about the opportunities that summer time gives us, and we noted that it’s time to start saying “yes” to things that will allow us to spend meaningful time doing things that are important to our kiddos. Be sure to check that out if you missed that episode, for I believe that you’ll get some great ideas and a better understanding of why you’d want to intentionally spend time investing in those relationships and where that investment can lead.


Today, we’re looking at another way to build or deepen relationships with our children as we talk about Doing the Unexpected. You’ll find that this is the “how” that supports the “why” we discussed last week.

Unshackled from the classroom, boys and dads come to life in an environment where faith and understanding grow naturally.
